If you want owt - go down the market...

They sell everything from pins to pearl earrings, from peaches to pig's trotters, from tripe to tiramisu.

See the hanging, marbled haunches of beef down Butchers' Row.

Smell the flowers, a fragrant dream.

Taste the fresh silvery fish motorwayed down from the North Sea.

Some would say the Market is the last authentic part of the city centre.

This northern city once textured by textiles has reinvented itself as a business and financial centre - it bristles with designer shops and bars.

A cosmopolitan, twenty-four hour city.

Yet slap bang in the centre is a shard of another city.

And after countless makeovers, the Victorian City Market remains what it has always been; a place where you can get anything and see anything - a place teeming with life.

A place bristling with stories.

The market is the real face of the city - mucky, multicultural and magnificent.

'Market' is an umbrella series of six plays about people who work in and around its stalls.

Each story is a self-contained quirky tale.

Modern morality plays, with a whiff of the fantastical about them.
